“The best B&B in Bergamo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Great location, comfortable and tasteful furnishings suites, towels available in sufficient quantity, hair dryer, kitchen utensils to prepare meals, refrigerator, comfortable beds. I would recommend for couples and families with children, cot available for infants, great (continental) breakfasts at a nearby cafe and most importantly - excellent care of Miss Federica.

the Best place in Italy.
Well design, clean, well equiped, In every small thing you will find that the Owner made her best to give you comfort and nice time.
Towels - perfect. Bathroom - can't be cleaner, perfect.
in the kitchen you will find everything you can need also tools to open a botel of wine.

We stayed in the Creme Apartment.
This is a good bet if going to Bergamo, which is a beautiful city and well worth visiting. We stayed for a week and were met at the apartment by Federica and a friend. We paid 30% deposit up front through Paypal and the remainder in cash on arrival. The fact that the initial payment was through Paypal put my mind at ease (due to the fact that they were unlikely to be on it if they were not real).

The apartment is clean and as advertised. It is located on a pedestrian street in close proximity to what we considered to be the nicest area of the lower city (citta bassa) The Upper City (Citta Alta) or the Old Town is located straight uphill from the apartment (about a 15min brisk and somewhat strenuous walk). We found walking straight up was the best way for us but the walk is fairly hard so otherwise take the bus. The funicular is about a 10-15 walk from the apartment and is nice to do once but not that practical as by the time you have walked over and waited for it you would allready be there on the bus or by foot.

The apartment itself is very well equipped and as per the photos. It has a full range of kitchen equipment a spacious, modern and well equiped bathroom etc (one drawback was the lack of a shower screen, though I'm sure they will have that installed by now). The apartment is located in a charming building full of character and was perfect for us. However, in exchange for the character there are a number of small drawbacks. There is no aircon (it is cool though), no on-site carparking, no balcony or other outside space and the apartment is relatively compact. If you're ok with this then its a great option. (good for a couple with no car)

Almost forgot, you get complimentary vouchers for the beautiful cafe next door, 3.50 eur per day per guest, a lovely extra which added greatly to our experience.

All in all would very much recommend.

Room Tip: Creme may be the nicer of the two available apts (I think)

excellent room+kitchen+bathroom, at the bottom of the beautiful alta citta, with access to the center in 5 min and off a quiet pedestrian street.

If you are independant minded and you are happy being left alone, this is the perfect place for a stay in Bergamo. Federica was very helpful if needed but stayed out of our way. Cleaning is once every 3 days, which is good to get the feeling that you are in your own cosy studio -without having to care for the chores nonetheless. Room is big enough for 2 or a couple with a child, but suits 3 friends if happy with 1 shared king size+a (less comfy I have to say) single bed in the same room .
